Would I be able to install either 10.5 or 10.6 on this laptop, specs are below

Chipset: AMD
CPU: AMD Athlon II Dual Core
RAM: 4GB DDR3
HDD: 640GB Split into two partitions
Graphics: ATI Mobility Radeon 4200 Series up to 1.5GB

Is there any way to install this?

Probably, but your video won't be very good. It would have been better if you had identified which laptop you actually own.

Edit: Sorry, I missed the name of your computer in the title. Here is a posting of someone with a similar computer that got it working except for wireless: http://www.insanelym...howtopic=249511

And I tried with Kalyway 10.5.2, iATKOS v7 and JaS Client/Server but none worked, they get stuck at something to do with ACPI. Although I seemed to read alot of people getting success with AMD and Toshiba Satellites on Leo4All, anyone have experience with this Distro?

And video isnt a problem, I dont plan on doing any 3D or similar applications, I'm keeping a dual boot of Windows 7 and Mac OS X, OS X will only be used for Music, Internet etc Mainly for my iPod and stuff

It hangs at ACPI: System State.. any idea's how to get around this?

Well I heard someone with a C660 series got it working fine with the iATKOS S3 V2 but I don't get any luck with it, I guess it doesnt like Dedicated graphics, or at least just not the Mobility Radeon 4250

More work into it, I think it will in fact work on my laptop.. Just that I have issues with ACPI and my BIOS gives zero options into this, its very limited in what you can control.

Can someone give me a link to the ACPI kexts from 10.4.8? been looking for them everywhere and cant find them and the only JaS 10.4.8 torrent I found wouldnt download, so can't extract it myself sadly.

Any help would be great, thanks!

I tried looking for the ACPI kexts, but the links I found weren't working. If you get it installed could you post here how you did it because I want to get OSX on my C660. I have tried every distro I could think of too.
